Such a delightful man to be around. Funny, smart, so friendly. Howard had a way of making you feel like you were an old friend. He will be greatly missed.

Howard was a kind, caring man with a wonderful sense of humour. My mom and dad had some fun and wonderful times with Howard and Rita. He will be missed terribly by all who knew and loved him.

We were very sorry to hear of Howard's passing. My heart goes out to his family and adoptive family. He was a fighter for sure!
